Listening for Lions

Most of us have never been to Africa but after reading Listening for Lions, I can better imagine the beauty of the country as well as the dangers that lurk around every corner. Young Rachel Sheridan is born and raised in Africa by her missionary parents and knows no other life. Then one day everything changes. Her parents die when influenza strikes her village and Rachel becomes entangled in a criminal scheme that takes her all the way to England, away from her beloved Africa. Does she end up in an orphanage? Why does she hide her true identity? Will she ever return to Africa? Read Listening for Lions by Gloria Whelan to learn the answers and you'll also find a truly enjoyable story about a strong, determined and loyal 13 year old girl named Rachel.
